YouTube Premium is a paid service enabling ad-free experience at YouTube where you can also download videos for offline watching. However, the platform allowed downloading clips only at 720p resolution, even if the actual video had higher quality.
Now YouTube has finally started rolling out the 1080p download option, as spotted on one user’s iPhone. Later it was confirmed that Android users are also slowly starting to get it.
There is no official confirmation from YouTube whether the feature is only being A/B tested or everyone with Premium will get it.
If you happen to already have the 1080p download option in your YouTube app let us know in the comments.
Why would I do that when I can keep busy and put down ideas or catch up on a favourite series.
Not on a 12h hour flight at night with nothing to look at, no.
